Although he had been in rather delicate health for some time past, his death was not looked for so soon. He ate his supper the evening of his demise, and after some friends had spent the evening with him, and all was thought well for the night. His aged companion noticed rather strange symptoms, and was calling other members of the family to his bedside, they were soon confident that he was expiring, and not understanding the reason that his family were making their approach, asked "What is the matter?" and breathed his last. He was fast completing his 86th year. The funeral ceremonies were conducted by the Rev. John Core, of Lancaster, Pa. Thus are we again admonished of the certainty of death, and the importance of "Be ye also ready."
